It’s not blue skies, it’s really windy and the yard is soupy but the playset is still standing and the kids are happy and playing.
We did end up back in the laundry room last night. That time for a storm that was coming straight for us (the one earlier in the evening was 20 miles north of us but sirens were a precaution in case it hooked down…also it’s dark so who really knows what’s really going on out there…). The weather guy used the words “concerned”, “nasty” and “rotation”. Not really the words you want to hear attached to your town name. In the end, it was super loud but no reports of anything touching down.
The kids were fast asleep on the floor and all of a sudden we hear Mia giggling uncontrollably…something sure was funny in her dream. Then, I went to move her so I could get to where I could throw myself on top of both of them when she – still asleep – mumbles “I want to move somewhere else.” Hahaha. I think she meant somewhere in her makeshift bed/laundry room but it was just so funny considering what was going on outside.
And, just what we all wanted to hear: round 2 coming back through tonight. We’re thankful for safety, for kids who roll with the punches and do so well with what Mia used to call “tornado parties”, and for technology that helps us prepare.We’re actually pricing shelters. Guess that’s what happens when you live in “concerning nasty rotation” country.
